A site OrganizedHome has released a bunch of free template pages for managing different aspects in household.
The idea is to print out what you needs, put them into a binder and compose a customize Household Notebook to put your family in order.
I think another idea without going all the way is to print out what you need, and stick them onto the fridge. The creative is what you need to make this effective.
The template pages cover different areas, such as to-do, phone, family and school, home management, meals and menus, money and finance, health and fitness, and travel and activities:
Unlike a personal planner, which is designed for use by one person, a household notebook or family organizer serves as “command central” for an entire family. While each family’s organizer will be unique, most are simple three-ring notebooks with several divider sections.
Most household notebooks include a telephone and message section, a divider for church, clubs or volunteer activities, travel, home management and finance sections, medical information, and personal records like gift list and clothing size charts.
Because they’re infinitely expandable, household notebooks become as distinctive as the family that uses them. A family with school-aged children involved in dance, music and sports will include organizer sections for rehearsal and practice schedules, summer activity ideas and video to-rent lists. A two-career couple with pre-school children may add babysitter and day care dividers and an emergency telephone list to their household notebook. Empty nesters will rely on packing checklists for vacations, home repair records and gift suggestion lists for far-flung children.
Thanks WinterMute for the heads up!
